    Franks reverted to the Browns' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Franks was elevated tot he active roster for Sunday's win over the Bears, and he played nine snaps on offense and 11 on special teams without recording a stat. He's unlikely to have a long-term spot on Cleveland's 53-man roster while Austin Hooper, David Njoku and Harrison Bryant remain healthy.

  • Browns' Jordan Franks: Elevated for Week 3

    Franks was elevated to the Browns' active roster from the practice squad Saturday.

    It remains to be seen whether Franks will dress on game day against the Bears, but he'll be an option to provide extra depth at tight end behind Austin Hooper, David Njoku and Harrison Bryant. All six of his NFL appearances came with the Bengals back in 2018, and Franks has just two career catches for 37 yards.

  • Jordan Franks: Comes back to Cleveland

    Franks was signed to the Browns' practice squad.

    Franks spent the summer in Ohio with the Browns and moved up the depth chart when Cleveland lost Stephen Carlson to a season-ending knee injury. Ultimately, Cleveland opted to keep three tights, which means Franks would be first in line if an injury crops up.

  • Jordan Franks: Dropped by Browns

    Franks was cut by the Browns on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Franks has spent his first three seasons with the Browns. However, he has not suited up for a regular-season game since his rookie year in 2018. It is unclear if he will again spend the season on their practice squad or ultimately look for a new opportunity.

  • Browns' Jordan Franks: Staying in Cleveland

    Franks signed a reserve/future deal with Cleveland on Monday.

    Franks is expected to be healthy after spending the past two months on the practice squad injured list. With no catches to his name since the two he posted in 2018, he's likely no more than a fringe option as the Browns head into the offseason.

  • Jordan Franks: Dealing with injury

    Franks (undisclosed) was placed on the practice squad injured list by the Browns on Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but he'll start the path to recovery before trying to make an attempt at a 53-man roster spot around the league.

  • Jordan Franks: Inks deal with practice squad

    The Browns signed Franks to the practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Franks was cut by the Eagle's practice squad a couple of weeks ago, and he'll get a fresh start in Cleveland. The Browns have four healthy tight ends on the active roster, so Franks will operate on the scout team and likely won't be activated unless an injury surfaces.

  • Jordan Franks: Cut from Philly's practice squad

    Franks was released from the Eagles' practice squad Tuesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    The Eagles have opted to replace Franks with a slightly more experienced tight end option in Jason Croom, whom they added to the practice squad in a corresponding move. This decision comes on the heels of an ankle injury to tight end Dallas Goedert, so it says something about the current stage of Franks' development that the team opted to replace him rather than give him a chance to seize the opening created by Goedert's injury.

  • Jordan Franks: Secures practice squad role

    Franks signed with the Eagles' practice squad Tuesday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Franks spent training camp with the Bengals but couldn't make the cut. The Eagles are carrying three tight ends on the active roster, so Franks likely won't receive a promotion barring an injury to Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert or Richard Rodgers.

  • Jordan Franks: Let go by Bengals

    Franks was waived by Cincinnati on Saturday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Franks was elevated to the 53-man roster from the practice squad for the final game of the regular season in 2019, but he failed to see the field. He'll likely look for a depth role or practice squad spot elsewhere around the league, as the Bengals will roll with C.J. Uzomah, Drew Sample and Cethan Carter at tight end to start 2020.

  • Bengals' Jordan Franks: Rejoins 53-man roster

    Franks was promoted to the Bengals' 53-man roster Friday, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

  • Bengals' Jordan Franks: Activated to 53-man roster

    Franks was promoted to the active roster Tuesday.

    Franks became a strong candidate for promotion following the Bengals' decision to place tight end Mason Schreck (knee) on injured reserve. It's unlikely that Franks will assume any role of offensive value, but there's opportunity to make an impact on special teams should he prove his ability on Sundays.
